Garbage collection at your doorstep in Chitlapakkam

By Saptarshi Bhattacharya

CHENNAI, OCT. 13. The Chitlapakkam town panchayat has begun door-to-door collection of garbage in seven of its wards.

The local body has purchased 12 tricycles and appointed conservancy workers to collect garbage from the houses. Each tricycle will be manned by two workers.

At a brief function last week, the panchayat president, N.C.K. Rajeshwari, said the door-to-door collection would be extended to other wards gradually.

An additional 14 tricycles were being purchased for the purpose.

A segregation shed was being constructed behind the town panchayat office where the rubbish would be segregated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable substances. Self-help groups would be involved, she said.

Expressing the fear that the system could be misused, P. Viswanathan, convener, Coordination Committee of Residents' Welfare Associations of Chitlapakkam, said the scheme should be handed over to authorised persons appointed by the town panchayat. The implementation of the scheme should be under the control of the local body and it should by no means hand over powers to any other entity.
